By Jeleel Olawale

The Authorities of Ob afemi Awolowo University (OAU), has debunked the rumour that a University lecturer stole some phones of some students who were writing in examination hall.

This is contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer, Mr Abiodun Olarenwaju, on Wednesday, in Ile-Ife.

“The attention of the management of OAU, Ile-Ife, has been drawn to a viral video where a male young adult was allegedly involved in stealing phones of some students who were in examination hall.

“While some alleged that he was a lecturer, others said that he was an invigilator.”

Olarenwaju maintained that a well dressed man in a suit came to campus to disguise his intention, he was eventually seen stealing the phones from the bags of students who were sitting for their examination.

The Public Relations Officer stressed that his mode of dressing made those who caught him stealing the phones think that he was a lecturer assigned to invigilate the examination.

Putting the record straight, the Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju, stated that “the culprit was neither a lecturer in any of our Departments nor a student of our University.”
